at the white house on friday, along with house minority leader nancy pelosi and senate majority leader harry reid and minority leader senator mitch mcconnell. jeff, it seems like the media are poised to blame republicans if the deal falls apart. >> if you look at the polling, over half the country believes it's the g.o.p.'s fault if this deal falls apart. why that? the democrats and the president himself have done an effective job of essentially trashing republicans saying that this whole, the reason that there's a, you know, there isn't a deal in the first place, because it's their fault and that's not true. it's both parties that did this and the president particularly not showing leadership and kicking the can down the road and creating a super committee. the media is not covering this correctly at all. reporting that the president want a deficit package. 1 trillion from tending the war and that's going to happen and another trillion from spending cuts in the past so they are he completely ignoring that and again, it's not spending cuts that the president is going to agree to in the end.
in the obama era than it is the kind of association with the crazy fringe. >> and i got nancy pelosi on the road on that subject yesterday in a clip we have not played, but we're going to play in a second. her reaction to that -- her diagnosis of that on the republican side and how she says it has been different in the past is fascinating and that's coming up. and it's apparently mraz. >> can i just say, every day, i get into my show and there's nine names that i forget to check the pronunciation. >> i'm sorry. i'll never do it again. chris hayes, i'm going to call it yupa. i hope you don't mind. we'll be right back. yeah. then how'd i get this...

-- >> use the word "revenue." >> nancy pelosi took the position, a good negotiating position, that it ought to be $1 million to hundred $50,000. another -- and not $250,000 bid another suggestion, $500,000. that is where the movement is going to come, on that number. . >> nibbling at the edges. >> i now, but that is where the movement comes. >> is there a deal behind closed doors we don't know about? >> i don't think so. public posturing at this point. >> the tea party is not as strong as it was. the members who came back won gerrymandered districts, but speaker boehner has more control of his caucus this time. >> mitt romney explains why he lost the election. >> the president gave them a big gift on immigration with the dream act and the amnesty program. number two, put in place obamacare, which is basically $10,000 a family. >> there is mitt romney extending to its biggest donors why he lost the election. gov. bobby jindal, chris christie, they don't like that kind of talk. >> well, because it is politically suicidal. every once in awhile i say to myself, you are an idiot. every time you
, and meeting with this people provides great theater for that public. >> didn't nancy pelosi say today they would have milestones along the way and that there might be miniature goals as we get to the end? >> yes. >> how do you see that playing out? >> well, i think that this, again -- gwen: is this part of the public? >> this is a sign they have to get this done. there is nobody right now on either side of the aisle who wants to see this happen. i think what you're seeing when harry reid, for instance, is standing there and practically promising that we're going to get a deal before december 31, he stood up there and said that today. they mean business. >> right. >> there are lots of pieces to this. i think what they agreed to today is divide into pieces. how do we deal with the end of the year problem on spending, what do we do about a longer term deficit thing. they're trying to set up a framework to get it done. gwen: the sequester is what they're going to talk about down the road? >> they're probably going to find a settlement for this year, whether they do $100 billion down payme
and democratic leader nancy pelosi sounded equally positive. >> we have the cornerstones of being able to work something out. we'll both have to give up some of the things that we know are a problem. >> we understand that it has to be about cuts, it has to be about revenue, it has to be about growth. >> then came senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. so we might have a fly in the ointment. here it is. >> i can say on the part of my members that we fully understand that you can't save the country until you have entitlement programs that fit the demographics of the changing america in the coming years. we're prepared to put revenue on the table, provided we fix the real problem. >> the real problem? let me tell you something, senator. the real problem is two unfunded wars from the bush years, the bush tax cuts, and the give away to big pharma. senator mcconnell, it seems to me like he's up to something here. he knows how far senator bernie sanders and other democrats are going to defend the big three. senator mcconnell is hoping to get the democrats fighting one another on this, over the entit
better than to take the last budget the senate did, harry reid with his buddies, nancy pelosi, the 2008 free bailout, free stimulus budget and spent $2.5 trillion. nobody complained it didn't spend enough. if we adopted their budget right now, the 2008 budget, $1 trillion per year less than we are spenning right now. >> sean: we spend all of this time with an election and we are right back where we were. i don't know the republicans that voted for an increase -- here's my question to you. here's my question. do you think the leadership in the house is glg to hold the line on increasing taxes? >> well, gee... i know that we had the biggest conservative wave election in american history 2 years ago. two years later, we had a continuing resolution, a continuing resolution, a continuing resolution, debt ceil being increase. we -- ceiling increase. we ended up cutting nothing, really. we really-- >>> you are saying no. >> two years of leverage for nothing. it's time to use the leverage of the house. it's one-half of one-third, but the most important half of the legislative body. the founders
at this and moving on it. but with now 45 days to go, you know, i think the minority leader nancy pelosi's goal of christmas is a good one. it's probably also realistic that it won't happen before then. >> what about to both of you, if, if we get the money, say we get this trillion dollars one way or another, is there a guarantee, nancy, to you first, that, that this goes to reducing the deficit? i mean, do we have that guarantee? is there any way it could be spent? >> well, i feel like the president has talked about spending some of that before on infrastructure projects, and the idea of creating jobs. but i do think that the bulk of it will go towards reducing the deficit. that's something that both parties agree really has to be tackled. and the problem is that if they don't tackle it now they'll have to tackle it down the road. so i think that this will be -- this is one of the few shared goals that they do have, taking that money to reduce it. >> you agree, ed? >> yeah, absolutely. i think you mention infrastructure. i mean, that is one possible spending program or stimulus-like proposal t
when you saw nancy pelosi out there. you saw john boehner out there saying we are hopeful we can get a deal done. and the market had a positive reaction to that. yet it lost that upside throughout the day, teetered back and forth between positive and negative territory. finally, closing the day out positive, so perhaps that suggests that maybe we are a little bit closer. but here's the thing, randi, they've got to get something done. they've got to solve this issue. because if not, the consequences are severe. >> but you listen to some people, and they suggest that fears of fallen off the cliff are overblown. what are the real consequences here? >> the real consequences are another recession. i mean, i can tell you every ceo that i'm talking to right now says i'm not making major decisions. i'm waiting. i'm standing by the sidelines. i can't hire a lot of people, i can't invest in a lot of infrastructure because i don't know what the landscape is going to be in the next 45 days. i don't know what the landscape is going to be in the next three months. so there's a lot of holdup. now,
? >> if the president had a mandate, nancy pelosi would be the speaker of the house. >> the same question i put to gene sperling. how confident are you as these first face-to-face negotiations began, there will be a deal that you and your colleagues can support? >> very confident. there is an opportunity the president has to lead the country in a way that he wanted to back in 2008. there is a benefit to limited government. the president did not have it in 2009 when there was an expectation. listen, this move forward with the agenda. now, there is a restraining influence. i think there is an obscenity for both of these men, the state senate, their dispositions to come up with a remedy to get it done. >> would be better if it was just the two of them? >> are you stringing me out? >> well, they both have temperaments that can get to yes and that is a good thing in leaders. >> thank you for joining us. >> great, thank you. one of the players in these negotiations. thank you for that republican perspective.

subscribe to that? >> no. if the president had a mandate, nancy pelosi would be the next speaker of the happen. that one not happen. >> what about your outlook? how confident are you right now as these negotiations began at the end of the day there will be a deal that you and your colleagues can support? >> very confident. there is an opportunity the president has to lead the country in a way that he wanted to in 2008. the president did not have that in 2009. move forward with the agenda entirely. now there is a restraining influence known as house republicans. i think there is an opportunity for both men, the president who i know in my days in the senate, the speaker of the house, and their dispositions to come up with a remedy to get them out of this. >> will it be better if it is the two of them in the room? >> i think they both have temperaments that can get 2 yes. that is a good thing. >> thank you for joining us here. one of the players and these negotiations. >> next, members of the house comment on the testimony about the benghazi attacks. and then congressional black cau
for talks to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. house minority leader nancy pelosi says no tax hike, no deal. >> close lop holes far too little money. and it could be they have said they want it to be revenue neutral. if it's going to bring in revenue. the president has clear that the higher income people have to pay their fair share. >> republicans argue now ♪ time to raise taxes on anyone if lawmakers don't reach a deal, hundreds of billions of dollars in tax increases and spending cuts go into effect january 1st. >> in new york, it apparently pays to be dead. you heard me. audit of the state's medicaid program from march of 2006, to february 2011, found that $1.9 million was coughed up for hundreds of people that were no longer alive. one person received more than $25,000 a year for seven years after he had died. that's a good business. in all, the audit found about $26.8 million in improper payments made by the program. people all over the country expressing their anger for obama care with their love of pizza. the group rebooting america organizing pappa johns appreciation day. that so
